and thanks me to help you today. I am a licensed diagnostic and repair technician, I look forward to working with you.Sorry it has taken so long to answer your question.With regards ***** ***** a different engine in your Jimny, there are several options but what ever engine is fitted it will need a fair amount of conversion work to make it fit. With enough time and money you could fit any engine that will physically fit in the engine bay but there are a few engines that have been used in the past and are relatively simple. A fair amount of welding and custom parts will be required with any engine swap as no engines other than the original 1.3L were designed to be fitted to this car.I will put a list of the best engines which are regularly used in conversions. I will put the engine codes too. Unfortunately the majority of them are not chain driven but i will put a note buy the ones that areDiesel VW 1.9TD (AAZ) 75bhp - This is mechanical fueling so very little electronics are required.VW 1.9L TDI (1Z) 90bhp/110bhp This is the electronic direct injection version of the above engine.VW PD Engines (110/115/130/150 bhp) Similar engine to above to fit but far more electronics and vacuum systems require fitting, a very powerful and refined engineIsuzu 1.7L (17D 57bhp) fitted to older Vauxhalls (less electronics)Isuzu 1.7L Turbo (17DT 82bhp) Turbocharged version of above engine.Petrol Vauxhall 2.0L and Red top - (150bhp +) Many variants of this engine can be adapted to fit.Honda 1.4L ( D14Z1) 85bhpHonda 1.6 Vtec D16W5 (125bhp)Honda 2.0L ( F20B2 ) 150bhpHonda 2.0L Vtec (F20C2) 240BHP (chain driven)Honda 2.0L K20 (Any K series) (chain driven) 120 - 200 BHP depending on variant.I hope I’ve provided the information you were seeking.
